A book about a painter The quite compact storage
of modern Armenian fine arts has recently been
enriched by a new volume. A book created by Nelli
Shanazarian titled "Valmar: Artist with Music
Presiding in his Salon", is devoted to the
paintings of artist Valmar.
The book contains echoes of the artist's 30 year
creative work: newspaper articles, analyses, interviews
Valmar has had 36 individual exhibitions abroad
and participated in 156 group exhibitions. Collectors
worldwide have his work.
About Valmar, Shahnazarian wrote: "Valmar
does not imagine his life without seeing the Biblical
mountain, moreover drawing. It is a source of
inspiration, like a handful of Armenian soil necessary
as a parent, without which the artist does not
imagine his mornings and evenings, and draws at
the call of heart and soul, as well as out of
sense of duty."
